Something that is key to marketing online is to have a web presence which you can’t do without a website. If you are like me, CSS, HTML and all the other acronyms, etc are not that easy to understand for newbies. Someone was kind enough to guide me to a free website builder. The key word is free….here is a link to the site . Anyway, it is very helpful and it really does take you step by step.
Okay, I decided to order business cards from Vistaprints to promote myself. While ordering the cards, vistaprints offered (for a small fee) a lovely t-shirt which matched my cards. I included the shirt with my order thinking that I can wear it to the gym and do a little self-marketing. The website address on the shirt is www.nicolettestevens.com which is a domain name I own that directs the viewer to my affiliate site. Anyway, why did I suddenly have trepidation about wearing my namesake in public. Remember the name of this blog refers to introverts. The introvert in me began to rear it’s ugly head, thinking what do I say if someone asks me about the site. Duh….isn’t that what a marketer wants…tell them it is an affiliate site and encourage them to visit.
Okay, don’t laugh because all introverts have had these conversations with themselves at one time or another. Continuing on in my adventures.
Wow, I just showed my website to my daughter and she was like “I don’t get it” did you just do this today? Okay, I have been working on how to personalize my search engine, learn the business, get the business set up, watching video after video for three weeks. Why did she just dismiss my efforts. Once I expressed myself, she did apologize.
